BERLIN (AFP) - Less than two weeks after releasing Erich Honecker from prison and letting him fly to Chile, a German court said it might ask the former East German leader to testify in the trial of others who built the Berlin Wall.

Three of Honecker's contemporaries, including a former defence minister, Heinz Kessler, are being tried for allegedly giving shoot-to-kill orders to guards on the Berlin Wall and inter-German border.
